    Solved My PC was hacked

    I apologize for taking so long to reply. It took me a bit to finally track down the employee at the bank that helped me with this initially. My bank is telling me I have to take this to Best Buy or a place like that to have it "certified" (their words) that it's clean for me to be able to use...

    Solved My PC was hacked

    Thank you for sending this. I also received download/install instructions from the maker of my pc (cyberpowerpc.com). Is any one of these preferred over the other? Also, I have external storage coming so I am waiting for that to arrive before I can start on reinstalling the OS. Thanks again.

    Solved My PC was hacked

    Thank you for your reply. I will go that route (reinstalling the OS). I have to figure out how I'm going to do that because the pc I have came with Win 10 Home already installed, but it didn't come with a copy of the OS. I have a crap ton of pics and docs to take off before I do as well...

    Solved Recovering data off an old pc

    I finally looked at the hard drives (there are two) using the docking station I just got. I was surprised at how fast it was getting in and out of the folders. For me to be able to access stuff on it like my old Outlook email I will need a working copy of Vista won't I? Or will that method...

    I was going to try that but I'm afraid the old drive is damaged and it might do something to my current pc.

    Solved Recovering data off an old pc

    I have no experience with Linux. Don't have it on my pc. One of these days when I get brave I'll try installing it for instances such as this.
